Last night we brought our friends to the Catch. Food was great, and service was very professional. Appetizers and entrees were served in an excellent presentation. Congrats to the chef and staff. A great place to eat!

My kids are from DC and we all love this restaurant. We always request Jennifer she always tells us what looks good. Recommended soft shrill crabs this time and they were great. Plus the fried oysters were superb not to much breading light weight and delicate. Just couldn't ask for better seafood done right!

Catch had been our favorite restaurant in Wilmington, but the meal we had at a visit late in 2013 was disappointing. So we were apprehensive about returning when we visited about a week ago. We had an excellent experience this time. Cocktails, food and service were all memorable. For appetizer we had fried oysters over kale, with pieces of pork... More

Last night was our second time here and we are glad we returned to another excellent meal. The seared tuna was excellent and plenty of it. I suppose the meat dishes are also good but I will stick to the seafood dishes because they are among the best. The wine list is also quite good as is the attentive service.... More

Catch has a great reputation but it did not live up to its potential. Food and experience was ok but not worth the expense. There are better options around town if you are going to put forth the money.

Awesome crab cakes and ribs! If your ever in the Wilmington area, this place is a hidden gem. I mostly recommend the ribs (best I've ever had).

An inconspicuous spot in a small strip shopping center, it was a great place for our party of 17 to have dinner. We were seated at two adjacent tables in a semi-private room (half-wall separating us from other diners), and were promptly tended to by two courteous and capable servers. I can't speak to all of the food, but four... More

Waited 15 min for a drink order, an unacceptable amount of time in an upscale restaurant. The menu does warn you that they are small so be patient but it was a Monday evening 7:45 and they were only about 30% full. They have a great pesto olive oil on the table but we waited 15 more minutes after ordering... More
